Mission: At the University of Minnesota Ballroom Dance Club (BDC), our mission is to create a fun atmosphere for the University and surrounding community. Our focus is on spreading the joy and knowledge of ballroom dance, as well as establishing an inclusive environment where dancers return year after year.

We’re really lucky at BDC to be able to offer professional ballroom lessons! Our club is open to anyone, not just students. No special clothing, previous experience, or partner is necessary! Check out our Club page for more info.
